June Christy Something Cool 180g Mono LP
Out Of Print! Last Chance! Limited Supplies!
Although it was June Christy's youthfully exuberant vocals that helped to make Stan Kenton's 1945 juke box classic "Tampico" a swinging hit, it was her 1954 song about a lonely girl looking for a cool drink on a hot summer day that brought the name June Christy to the attention of jazz lovers. June didn't exactly invent cool jazz, just as Elvis didn't exactly invent rockabilly, but with a song perfectly crafted to her seductive and unique style, she will always be remembered for the song and the album with the same name. She wasn't the first lady to sing a cool song, but she was the best!
If you are one of the cats who bought this record in the 50's the sound of Cisco's new record will jar your senses. With all the benefits of state-of-the-art mastering and the improved pressing on silent "HQ 180" vinyl, the new Something Cool is truly something special!
